    Hi, here is the situation.

    I shutdown WindowsXP with a folder/window open under My Computer. It was a small subdirectory I had been looking at to find a file. I shutdown the computer and when I boot up again, the window is there right where it was when I shutdown. Now here's the kicker. Now, even with that particular window closed and the desktop completely clear, I continue to get that same window opened upon windows start up. No matter what I do that same window always appears right where it was the first time I shutdown with it opened.

    I'm clueless....but then that is another topic of discussion.

    Please steer me in the right direction to fix this? Thank you in advance :)

    I'm not sure if it would be there, but try checking the startup group in msconfig. That's my only guess, sorry dude.
